Hi, John
    When starting an iscsi storage pool, libvirt will execute “iscsiadm --mode 
node --portal --targetname iqn.2003-10.com.xxxx --op new”, which 
is called by virISCSINodeNew.
    This will add an iSCSI node record. The record file is 

    When we already executed "iscsiadm --mode discovery --type sendtargets 
--portal --op new", another iSCSI node record will be produced in 
    Then two iscsi sessions, as [2] and [3], will be logged in when we start 
the pool.

    Device of session [2] is /dev/sde, and device of session [3] is /dev/sdf.
    But there is only one path in /dev/disk/by-path, let's assume it is 

    Refreshing storage pool will choose first session, like [2], and libvirt 
will find sde NOT sdf in /dev/disk/by-path. We will not find sde, then no 
volumes is found in the pool.
    I think the root reason is we have two iSCSI node records.
    Can we use "iscsiadm --mode discovery --type sendtargets --portal --op new" in virISCSINodeNew?
